Invocation Spells – Spread Cruelty In The Abyss (Hells Headbangers)

Invocation Spells – Spread Cruelty In The Abyss (Hells Headbangers)

Naturally Metal is an ever evolving genre, but back in the early days Metal saw a huge array of progressive steps from the early days of Sabbath to the NWOBHM and beyond the genre was constantly growing and expanding. However one subgenre emerged that would.. Read More
Arrogant Destruktor - Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Arrogant Destruktor – Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Here’s a nice coincidence; I bought the limited cassette run version of this on spec a while back just because I liked the name, and it’s now getting a CD release. I still know very little about the band other than they appear to be.. Read More
Vomitor - Pestilent Death (Hell's Headbangers)

Vomitor – Pestilent Death (Hell’s Headbangers)

Ah, Vomitor, Aussies with all the natural subtlety and reserve of their countrymen removed. And of course we wouldn’t have it any other way. Pestilent Death is their fourth full length but it’s been around six years since The Escalation, which kinda shocked me when.. Read More
Memoriam - The Silent Vigil (Nuclear Blast)

Memoriam – The Silent Vigil (Nuclear Blast)

It was quite a thing for Memoriam, comprised of course of members and ex-members of British Death Metal royalty, Bolt Thrower and Benediction, to have produced their excellent debut album, “For the Fallen” back in 2017, less than a year after they’d formed. It’s probably.. Read More
Provocator – Satan, Chaos, Blood And Terror (Moribund)

Provocator – Satan, Chaos, Blood And Terror (Moribund)

Recently I have found myself enamored by Bestial Black Metal or War Metal if you like. Raw untamed, relentless Black Metal with a heavy Death Metal influence taking inspiration from the beginnings of Extreme Metal with an excessive worship towards the barbaric tones of Hellhammer,.. Read More
Crucifyre - Post Vulcanic Black (Pulverised Records)

Crucifyre – Post Vulcanic Black (Pulverised Records)

The Stockholm old-schoolers return with this, their third album, following from their last release, “Black Magic Fire” back in 2014. I have “Black Magic Fire” in my own personal collection, and while I remember enjoying it, I wasn’t completely blown away with it. There have.. Read More
Funeral Winds - Sinister Creed (Avantgarde)

Funeral Winds – Sinister Creed (Avantgarde)

…I get a feeling that 2018 is going to be a good year for fast, furious and brutal black metal… Now, Funeral Winds may take a bit of time getting a full-length record out, but when they do, they don’t fuck about. The follow-up album.. Read More
Anguish - Magna Est Vis Suignah (High Roller)

Anguish – Magna Est Vis Suignah (High Roller)

Founded in 2007, Sweden’s Anguish have experienced a number of line-up changes and creative dry spells. However, the start of a new decade for the band finds them reaching back to their roots and sounding reinvigorated after 2014’s “Mountain”. Vocalist and bass man, J Dee.. Read More
Tongues - Hreilia (I, Voidhanger Records)

Tongues – Hreilia (I, Voidhanger Records)

Since their first EP offering in 2014, Tongues have kept a low profile. The Danes haven’t been lying idle though. Mixing black, death and doom metal, they have now released their debut full length, “Hreilia”; a dark dreamscape steeped in mysticism and spiritual bleakness. C... Read More
Damnation's Hammer - Unseen Planets, Deadly Spheres (S/R)

Damnation’s Hammer – Unseen Planets, Deadly Spheres (S/R)

Well here’s a nice surprise. First came across Damnation’s Hammer at this year’s Warhorns festival where they played an impressively tight and focused set which went down a storm. I marked them as ones to buy an album by and, lo, here I am with.. Read More
The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus - Split (I, Voidhanger)

The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus – Split (I, Voidhanger)

A relatively short release, this, being as it is a four track EP coming from those lovers of all things eclectic, I, Voidhanger records. In fairness, both acts are one-man outfits. Featured here is the dark and wilfully obscure death metal of Ohio’s Wakedead Gathering,.. Read More
Vassafor – Malediction (Iron Bonehead)

Vassafor – Malediction (Iron Bonehead)

It’s funny but I’ve been listening to a lot of late eighties, early nineties stuff recently for the usual confluence of synchronicity reasons. I say funny, but it’s just that it put me in the right mindset to approach NZ two piece band Vassafor. Despite.. Read More
